Jari PitkÃÂ¤nen - Conv Exp [mir011]
From our last release, we're now heading east to Finland where Jari PitkÃ¤nen lives. Previously Jari has released two great eps on enougrecords and now he's back with another fine half hour of ambient drones, along with some great artwork by Jari himself.
Run time 30:07
On Conv Exp Jari works with subtle drones and voices. These sounds are built by stretching out short samples like pianos and vocals and manipulating them into slowly shifting drones that morph into new shapes and sounds. Sounds that's almost as mystical and cryptic as their names.

This is one of the finest things I've heard on netlabels. These melodies are serene and meditative, and the vocals remind me of a modernist version of Tallis's Spem im Allium. I've listened to Pitkanen's other stuff; all of it is terrific!
